"This is the new yorker fiction podcast from the new yorker magazine. I'm deborah tradesman fiction editor at the new yorker each month. We invite a writer to choose a story from the magazine's archives to read and discuss this month. We're going to hear gallatin canyon by thomas mccain which was published in the new yorker in january two thousand three. The road stretched before me like an arrow. There was only enough. That left before rigby for me to say perhaps involuntarily. I wonder if we should just get married. Louise quickly looked away. The story was chosen by oprah who is the author of two novels the tigers wife and inland. Hi hi deborah. So you said when we first talked about doing podcast episode that you wanted to read a western story. Why was that. I think that there's a a renewed interest in literature of the west and also by authors. Who hail from the west and the story. I think is so deeply rooted in landscape and space in a certain kind of mentality of the mountain west which it both honors excoriates i am. I've loved the story. Ever since. I first read it and it just feels very emblematic of the space to me. Now when the story came out in two thousand three or a teenager. Did you read it. Then i did not. I'm ashamed to say. I read it some years but i did read it before i became a resident of the mountain west myself and i certainly think it shaped the way i thought about the area. Have you been a longtime reader of maclean's work. I would say that. I've been reading his work for almost the entire duration of my quote unquote literary life. A friend of mine. Who is a huge fan of his work and introduced me to it and I mean there's such range in his stories in his novels there's so much. Discover with mclean. Always

Hiroshima survivors worry that world will forget
"Exactly 15 minutes past eight in the morning on August 6th, 1945 Japanese time at the moment when the atomic bomb flashed above Hiroshi MMA Miss Yoshiko Sasaki, a clerk in the personnel department of the East Asia, 10 Works had just sat down at her place in the plant office and was turning her head to speak to the girl at the next desk. That rather ordinary sentence is the opening to the extraordinary August 1946 New Yorker article titled Oshima. It was published a year after the United States dropped the first nuclear bomb on that city, a year in which the U. S government had gone to great lengths to conceal the human devastation caused And to depict the bomb as a conventional humane weapon. The writer of the Peace John Hursey, uncovered a very different story reporting on the ground in Japan, author and journalist Leslie Bloome chronicles foresees work and the reaction to it in her new book, Fallout. She joins me now from Los Angeles. Leslie Bloome. Welcome. Thank you. Start with Who? John Hursey Wass and how he came to be the one to tell this story. Oh, John. Her see was a young World War two correspondent who had covered action in different theaters throughout the war for Time magazine. And like many war correspondents, then he was pretty supportive of the U. S military. And he even wrote an almost overly complimentary wartime bio of General Douglas MacArthur and That the U. S military knew him entrusted him would be an important factor in my story and how he eventually got his story about Hiroshi MMA, and I don't want to give away too much. But I will say that how he got in was by being the perfect Trojan horse reporter, The perfect Trojan horse reporter. You've hooked us where we're intrigued when I got there. He didn't report this out as a war correspondent. He focused very much on ordinary people on he picked six of them. Why did he want to tell the story in that way? Well, I mean, the fact of the matter is is that the bombing of Hiroshima was widely reported when it happened, and it was reported as a very big end of days. Story mean there were pictures of the mushroom clouds that were released in pictures, the landscape devastation. But there were no pictures that were released or no stories that were released about the human toll that it happened on the ground there, and the government was really going to enormous lengths to cover up the reality of theater. Tomic aftermath in Hiroshima, Nagasaki They were very concerned with as the former secretary of war, put it, not being seen as having outdone, Hitler and atrocities. So her C and his editors at the New Yorker magazine became determined to tell the story from the point of view of survivors. You know, these are among the on ly humans who have ever experience what it's like to be on the receiving end of nuclear attack. He ultimately picked a widow with young kids, a young female clerk to medics, a priest and a minister with with a young family, and his idea was to create a sense of empathy. In his readers with these individuals, because, after all, not everybody could understand the physics of how the bombs works or visualized. You know, an all out nuclear attack that anyone could relate to being a mother or a father or colleague or doctor who's going about their everyday business. One catastrophe strikes I wonder if you would give us a sense of just one telling story of what he did find when he was there What it was that so shocked American readers who had no idea what was unfolding in Japan. One story that particularly resonated with him. He interviewed a young female clerk who was in her company when the bomb was detonated. This's the clerk I mentioned in the intro exactly one of the most famous introductions in journalistic history, and when the bomb exploded over her factory bookshelves fell upon her, and she was nearly crushed to death by books. And he thought How ironic it was to have somebody nearly crushed by books within the first moments of the atomic age, and literally when he was leaving here, Oshima and standing on the surprisingly intact train station platform, he thought that he was going to have to write about that line. And that's one of the incidents that most resonated with readers. So August 1946 The New Yorker publishes. What was the reaction? Both in the United States and around the world to this story. Well in her sees own words. The reaction was quote explosive mean, I try not to use that word in my book for obvious reasons. But he did, And the article was simply titled here, Oshima, and it comprised nearly the entire contents of the August 31st 1946 issue of The New Yorker. It's sold out immediately. You're even black market copies of it going for, you know, astronomical sums. It was syndicated in its entirety, and this is a 30,000 word story in newspapers across the country and around the world. And editors and reporters and readers were enraged. They were horrified by the testimonies in her sees here, Oshima, and they also began demanding to know what else was the U. S government withholding from the US public And then, when President Truman was asked by a reporter if he had personally read it, he retorted. I never read the New York ER. It just makes me bad. But the fact is, is that the government had been put very much on the defensive. That said, You know, they didn't want to look like they were on the defensive, but they were and they had to scramble to try to reclaim the narrative.

"At The New Yorker magazine this might occur thanks so much for being with us thank you so much last week the immigration and customs enforcement agency ice reported a spike in the number of covert nineteen cases at one of its detention facilities in Arizona in a matter of days the number of detainees infected with the coronavirus inside the alloy detention center went from just over twenty two more than one hundred twenty I said it has quote comprehensive protocols on quote in place to protect staff and patients in accordance it says with CDC guidance but advocates say conditions inside the facility and a neighboring one in Arizona are putting the health of detainees and possibly their lives at risk reporters relating it Fernandez and shoe Joffe block have been following the case of one detainee who tested positive for covert nineteen at the allied facility they wrote about it for the guardian last week and they are with us now from Phoenix welcome to you both thank you both so much for joining us thank you for having us thank you for having us civilians are not as let me start with you tell us about many sought Mendoza the woman whose case you've been following just give us the outlines of her story where is windows it's a forty seven year old woman she's originally from Mexico she's been leading here in the United States for half of her life all of her family is here and she suffers from depression and diabetes type two that's the reason why Madison Mendoza sued the government to ask for her release she was very afraid that she could get sick with cold in nineteen this is like all the way back in March and unfortunately she did get sick there was a federal judge that order immigrations and customs enforcement to put in place certain protections for my soul but according to her attorney they failed for the most part and that's the reason why my diesel got sick how how long has she been in ice detention she's been in the tension for four years and she's not there serving the crime this is immigration detention is not punitive so what is going on is that she is in the middle of a deputation proceedings he's appealing to be able to get it to stay in the country the government is not granted her the opportunity to have bond and how she came to the attention of immigration authorities is because about six years ago she was charged with identity theft she'd been a manager at McDonalds for nine years and she was working with false documents and that's how she came to the attention of the police and eventually immigration authorities to carry into custody said you Jeffrey blocking your PC right that Mendoza sued ice and the private contractor that runs the facility back in March arguing she should be released because of the risk of covert nineteen infections and as you point out your piece choose a greater risk because she has an underlying health condition which is diabetes so do you drive people out what happened with the lawsuit well her lawsuit is still going her attorney actually has plans to appeal to the ninth circuit because so far the judge has not released her the judge did find that she was not being adequately cared for in ice custody and now she's in a medical isolation cell and one of the complicated parts of this is that she suffers from depression and her attorney and some medical experts on her behalf has argued that this kind of isolation could be very detrimental to her ability to recover and to her mental health has ice released any detainees during the pandemic because of the threat posed by the virus they have they've released more than nine hundred immigrants at this point but immigrant advocates say that they need to do a lot more there's a federal judge in California that ordered the agency back in April to do a comprehensive review of all of the immigrants who are particularly vulnerable with pre existing conditions are over the age of fifty five and reconsider their release but you know so far a large scale relief has not happened there are still a very large number of people who are detained and and more than twenty two hundred cove in nineteen cases around the country in these facilities florea I understand that you've spoken to my excellent Mendoza inside the facility how's she doing the first time I talked to her was about a week ago in she was very very the press had very little human interaction she is very concerned for her family and really worried really for her life she's been there for four years in detention and now this is almost like the last drop is it a very very fraught I think vulnerable mental state and literally pleading with the authorities to give her a chance to go back to recover with her family I'd like to understand no again why she was taken into custody to begin with as I understood it at least a twenty sixteen the priority was supposed to be people who have committed crimes or violent crimes and from what I'm understanding from you is that she her crime was that she was using false documents she was not part of some theft ring for example she was not so I'm just I'm still trying to understand why she's been detained for four years what immigration law can be very complicated in this case in Arizona these category of crime is considered a crime that can make you the portables and in the case of my soul she was in working with someone else's name she was working with her real name and and I made up social security number that happened to belong to someone else but she didn't necessarily know that and that's not what she had made it to which he pleaded so there's a difference between those two things and that's at the heart of her keys to Jude I think you were telling us that maybe someone does is one of more than two thousand detainees who tested positive in ice detention facilities and two detainees that we know of have died is that correct so so what is the response to this growing number of cases what we're seeing from ice and CoreCivic that runs the Elijah tension center where my soul as house I mean they continue to say that they are they are following CDC guidelines they are they are treating their detainees appropriately but we're continuing to see these numbers grow and it's not just detainees it's also the guards who work in these facilities at Eloy detention center more than sixty detention officers have tested positive so far and one officer died last weekend so this is an issue that affects the entire community so final thought here what are advocates and that they want us to do now advocates are continuing to call for the release of people ever everybody not just those with below normal conditions in what we've seen in a lot of cases is that people have sponsors they have ties to the community even if they don't have family their people their volunteer them to taking them into their homes where they can continue to be isolated and recover from college nineteen without any risk to to the rest of the community we are speaking with reporters but Maria Fernandez and Jew Jaffe block in Phoenix they've been reporting on conditions inside ice detention facilities.

Trump Undercuts Bolton on North Korea's Missiles
"Begin tonight, keeping them. Honest, President Trump back tonight from his state visit to Japan, whether it was the President's Cup trophy created just for him to present an assumed match the rounds of golf or the audience with Japan's new emperor. The trip was designed to flatter him showcase US Japanese unity. Instead, it seems to showcase divisions inside the west wing over what the country's foreign policy actually, is, which is no academic question. Considering that the divide appears to be over at least two global hotspots, Iran and North Korea. And it's especially significant in that it's the president and John Bolton. His national security adviser is third national security adviser so far seems increasingly at odds with each other. Now, you'll recall he was passed over for the job once before, in part, reportedly because of his mustache, the president's been widely reported do not believe. To look, the part, so he picks up one who would end up being a felon, Michael Flynn, then replaced him with three star general H R McMaster, who is a storied military career, but the president once said he looked like a beer, salesman and when he left Bolton got the nod tonight after the president's performance Japan. He's looking increasingly distant from the boss take a little cures Bolton in Tokyo watching as the president undercuts him on North Korean missile testing, which Bolton says, violates a UN Security Council resolution. My people think it could have been a violation, as you know, I view it differently. I view it as a man, perhaps, he wants to get attention or the president went onto rhapsodised about all the great beachfront property. There is North Korea and Spokane Kim Jong UN as, if he were a fellow real estate tycoon, naughty, bloodthirsty dictator of you. John bolton. Clearly does not share never has and the two different Iran, as well with the president talking tough in public, but counseling restraint behind closed doors, which it should be mentioned is certainly his prerogative is chief executive should also be said the president's often see things differently from their national security advisers, sometimes even hiring them to play devil's advocate. That said the president has now hired three of them. He seems secretaries of state defense in u n ambassadors come and go is change course. So many times on so many issues, whether it's North Korea Iran, pulling out of Syria, threatening to leave NATO there, perhaps it's not really possible to say that he and embassador Bolton truly at odds on foreign policy because he so far has no. Real consistent foreign policy to be at odds with other than a preference for appeasing dictators. That's the question at leaves the other, of course, is what exactly did the president? I think he was getting in John Bolton who's who's been nothing if not consistent, and consistently hawkish over the years perspective. Now from Dexter Filkins was written at length about it for the New Yorker magazine in a fascinating piece, entitled John Bolton on the warpath Ken Trump's national security advisor, sell the 'isolation as president on military force. Dexter, thanks for being here. John Bolton has always been John Bolton. I mean he's, he's always said that North Korea cannot be appeased that they're not going to give up nuclear weapons. And yet, there he is working for president who clearly is trying to make a deal. It's, it's, it's I think it's a fundamental divide in the White House, you have Bolton has publicly advocated attacking North Korea into Ron before he was national security advisor. He's, he's called regime change in Venezuela. It's not clear that Trump. Really buys into any of that. I mean, Trump campaign, I think I think so somebody must have said to him. You watch them on FOX saw him on FOX. And I think my impression is what, what the president liked about him was, how blunt he was, you know, it was like very, very blunt and plainspoken.

"A staff writer as well at the New Yorker magazine. Her new book is these truths a history of the United States, and we have an excerpt of it at on point radio dot org. Jill Lepore, welcome to on point. Hey, thanks so much for having me Magna. It is great to talk to you. I have been Rita VIN sort of like gobbling up your book. America's fault five hundred years, MS. Well, let me just start with a really basic question. This is seven hundred plus pages five hundred years of history. What made you want to take this on? You know, I guess partly. I just really wish there were a book like this it just for teaching purposes among other reasons that and also watching my kids go through school, and their AP US history classes that I think that there's lots of great textbooks out there. They're written by teams of authors. But there really isn't a single volume sweeping account of American history with a narrative voice that I think has a proposal for. So actually, honestly it was as much as anything a dare like I was asked by publisher day. This is like can we get it cover all of American history on ours? Like, could you cover all we're doing the pages of single volume book and coming under thousand pages you rose to dare I'm gonna dare you to jump across a canyon. No, it's a bad. It's I'm I'm a little embarrassed. But but because I really did feel like there was. I said you I mean, we're in the bookshelf is this book. And I thought there there should be one because we have a very polarized present. But that rests on a polarized understanding of the past. And I'm not sure like I think a lot of people of goodwill would like to feel like we're doing our part to repair the breach and for me as a historian that kind of begins with understanding the past in a way that we can all find her answers stirs in that story and all wrestle with its, you know, its beauty and its agony. So that's what I just like. Well, this'll feel like I'm doing my part give it a try. Well, so I mean, an and the central the the line one of the threads that you try to draw through this five hundred year history of what's happened on the North American continent is this question of truth, and how Americans have perceived what truth is how its centrality to the American story. You know, the our struggles with it. And I what I read is originally you wanted to. Just sort of stop your book with the presidency of Barack Obama. But notions of truth came front and center once again in two thousand sixteen so he kept writing. Yeah. Or I mean, honestly, I had to keep writing because the election of two thousand sixteen was an important realigning election on people who went out and voted for Trump felt that they were part of a revolution..
Former CBS CEO Les Moonves Denied $120 Million Severance Package
"This message comes from NPR sponsor Comcast. Comcast values your time. That's why you can schedule to our appointment windows, including nights and weekends that way. You can spend more time doing what you love. Comcast working to make things. Simple, easy, and awesome CBS is accusing les Moonves says of a quote willful failure to cooperate with an investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct. That failure atop the alleged misconduct. Is why CBS is denying him a severance payment of one hundred twenty million dollars? So what if the downfall of a legendary executive mean for his company NPR TV critic, Eric Dagens has covered moon vez and CBS for years. He's here either. Eric, hi, according to CBS, at least, and we should note. Moonves denies wrongdoing broadly. What what what is CBS say moon vested? Well, let's go back move. As was forced to step down back in September. At the New Yorker magazine published allegations from several women. Claiming he had sexually harassed or salted them. So the CBS board wound up hiring to law firms to look in the allegations against moon vase, also harassment or misconduct allegations that CBS news and CBS is wider corporate culture. Okay. So we mentioned an alleged willful failure to cooperate was Moonves supposed to cooperate with those law firms. Yes, they expected him to tell the truth when they asked him questions about his past conduct. Now, we haven't seen the reports that these law firms have created, but the New York Times reported on early drafts of the reports which said that investigators have evidence move as had lied to them and had tried to destroy text showing that he attempted to find acting work for one woman who'd made accusations against him in the board statement, they accused move as a breaching his contract and quote, willful material misfeasance now I had to look that word up, but it means performing an official duty in an improper or unlawful manner move as a turn. He has said in a statement that the conclusions are baseless that his client cooperated fully and that he vehemently denies assaulting. Although possession is nine tenths of the law. CBS has the one hundred twenty million dollars. They say they're keeping the one hundred twenty million dollars unless there's some other preceding we don't know about coming. But that leaves CBS trying to move on from losing its top executive in this in this particular way, how deep does the problem run at CBS. Well, you know, this was a company wants known as the Tiffany network. It bills itself as the most watched broadcast network in America, they have all these popular programs. But they also have this history of harassment allegations CBS this morning anchor Charlie rose was fired last year. After a Washington Post story revealed multiple allegations of sexual harassment. Jeff Fager, the executive producer of the top news magazine. Sixty minutes was let go in September. He had sent a threatening text to a CBS reporter who was working on a story about harassment allegations at CBS news. The New York Times reported last week on a nine. A nine point five million dollar settlement with actress Elisha deuce coupe who claim the she was harassed while she was working on the CBS drama bull. So there's a lot. And and as a critic, I pointed out CBS's lack of new show starring women for years. The question now is you know, is CBS really going to look harder at its history. Now or just hope everybody moves on after this crisis pass, you're putting on an interesting connection or parallel. We don't know how closely their connected, but we have allegations of private misconduct, and your noting something wrong with the public faces. CBS the opportunities given to women the representation of women CBS doing anything about these kinds of problems. Well, the board says it's created this new position called chief people officer to revamp its human resources departments. They say their diversity and inclusion efforts have been an adequate and they're going to beef them up. They're giving twenty million dollars to several different groups that are working to combat workplace harassment. But the CBS board is her from employees who said that Powell stars. And. Executives were not held accountable at the company and the question is whether CBS is going to hold them accountable now without big stories in the media to pressure them, Eric thanks so much for sheet. It thank you. That's NPR critic Eric decades.

"The New Yorker magazine announced that an interview with Steve Bannon would Steve Bannon himself would headline in an interview for the magazines festival that's held in October. Now, that announcement did not play well with a lot of people other speakers, including comedian and movie actor, jet appetite, and Jimmy Carey threatened to back out and only day later on Monday New York editor, David remnant announced that he had changed his mind. Steve Bannon is now out now van his aligned himself with the outright and white nationalist his publication. Breitbart has been a hub for those audiences and he spurred on right wing nationalists in Europe, Anita. What happened here? Why did Rennick and the New Yorker reverse course. Well, a lot of people, as you said, we're going to drop out and David remnant quickly turned around. I mean, it was shocking how quick that. Happened, Steve Bannon's response was scathing. I mean, he just basically called, I think actually the word was the word Donald Trump used gutless. He said, David remnant in the near New Yorker was gutless for disinvite him. You heard from a lot of people conservatives who say that they're often the people that are censored if you will, or they, they can't have an actual conversation. You see that a lot on higher education at colleges and universities where they say that conservative thinkers can't come to universities and talk, and they resent that if it's supposed to be, you know, a sharing of ideas. Why couldn't he just have that conversation? Now, a lot of other people say, well, they could have that conversation. David remnant could interview them for for a piece, a story that he shouldn't be headlining. The festival that was the that was the and this is a tough one. A lot of people say you should have an honest conversation as long as honest conversation is the point. Some people have looked at. Steve Bannon and said, his goal isn't honest conversation. It's it's incendiary remarks. It's division David Ramnik issued a long statement saying he had no intention of softball, Steve Bannon. He wanted to go at him in front of a crowd and that he was disappointed. Malcolm Gladwin works at the New Yorker. He said, call me old fashioned, but I would have thought that the point of festival of ideas was to expose the audience to ideas. If you only invite your friends over, it's called a dinner party, Josh. Well, it it is the New Yorker festival they have the right to choose who they want assure. And the central mistake that was made was inviting Bannon as the Representative of the Trump administration or the even the Representative of some of these populist nationalist ideas than than someone else who may be in the White House or have some more influence. I mean, keep in mind Bannon is estranged from from the Trump White House, and I don't think he has a whole lot of influence even in his whole sector of this populist nationalism that he advocates. But once you extend the invite, I think perhaps remnant shouldn't have caved into to the public pressure is it is this. Case of d platforming someone who like it or not like it or not is influencing politics in America and around the world. You know, I don't think Ben in his influence in politics as much as he thinks he is and you look at, you know, he wanted to take on Mitch McConnell. If you remember last year in these Senate primaries, take on every city and Republican Senator who's not conservative enough, and he didn't win a single race. His candidates didn't win a single contest. Well, guys, let's turn to some local politics of the week for a moment on Tuesday, the mayor of Chicago, you've heard of him. His name is Rahm Emanuel. He announced he's not seeking reelection for a third term. Emanuel was elected in back in twenty eleven to become the witty windy city's first Jewish mayor. The work he did over to terms will contribute to a controversial legacy for Rahm. Emanuel is credited with stabilizing.
